BPPV and Dizziness with Kregg Ochitwa


Do you work with a sports team, with seniors, in a hospital, or a bustling private practice and get stuck at times knowing what to do when a patient reports they are dizzy? We get it and you are not alone.

Research confirms that dizziness is a common complaint across the lifespan, but sadly it is also poorly understood and treated.

The thing is, it does not have to be this way. Combining decades of clinical experience with the current literature Kregg Ochitwa from the North 49 Balance & Dizziness Centre has developed 2 online courses to take your understanding of dizziness to the next level.

Understanding Dizziness 101 (4 hours of online learning) was created as a foundational course to help you develop a framework to assess and manage dizziness. Not all dizziness is the same and in this course we review how to subcategorize the causes of one’s dizziness based on taking a detailed vestibular history and exam. Easy to follow “how to” videos are included of each of the oculomotor tests so you can review as needed. From there we cover how to successfully treat the most common form of BPPV. Video review challenges, pop quizzes, and multiple PDF downloads are provided to reinforce the material covered.

A Field Guide to BPPV (6.5 hours of online learning) was developed for the newbie to the experienced vestibular therapist in mind as it takes a deep dive into BPPV. This course covers the background vestibular physiology so you not only understand the different assessment and treatment options, but why they work. We want you to be a critical thinker and not just a technician because it’s just a matter of time until you have to deal with someone with an atypical form of BPPV and those critical thinking skills will come in handy. Multiple “how to” videos were created for this course along with PDF downloads that you will want to access during your busy day.

The goal of these courses (and more to follow) will accelerate your learning experience, thereby improving your confidence and outcomes with this patient population, along with an increased demand for your services.

You can choose to take each course separately, but through Embodia there is also a Buy 1 Get 1 At 50% OFF offer (BOGO).

Of note, neither course is a prerequisite for the other.


This series is perfect for physical therapists, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors, medical doctors, athletic therapists, audiologists, and any other licensed healthcare provider who sees patients with dizziness.
